Default New wheels with stock tires question

Hey guys! I was looking to get some new wheels for my 2002 2dr 2wd blazer. I was looking to go with some 15x8 rims and here is where the question begins. the wheels will be going on the stock 235/70/15 tires that are only about 6 months old so plenty of tread left on those. I want the tires to be even or slightly outside the fenders and wanted to know the best way to do this as far as backspacing, or backspacing with spacers, or what you guys think would be best. Thanks Guys!

The 2wd blazers have stock 4inch backspacing...

Stock rim size is 15x7

So if you do go with the 15x8 and 4inch backspacing, the rim will stick out 1 inch farther then it is now.

If you go with 15x8 rim with 3inch BS then the rim will stick out 2 inches ...

etc....

If you look at my gallery, I have a 4x4 but mine stick out 1.5" from stock, so youll see if you like it or not.

Thanks Zasder that what i thought but wasnt 100% sure. I think I will probably stick to the 15x8 with 4" BS for now. Nice Blazer by the way, looks great.
